Ed­die Iz­zard: Force Ma­jeure

The Daily Telegraph - Review - - Television -

GOLD, 11.00pm

Ed­die Iz­zard per­formed this stand-up show in 28 coun­tries and in four lan­guages be­fore bring­ing it back to Lon­don’s West End last year. With his free­as­so­cia­tive tech­nique, pro­gres­sive pol­i­tics and de­light­ful silli­ness, the mad­cap Iz­zard dances around var­i­ous as­pects of hu­man his­tory, in­clud­ing re­li­gion, hu­man sac­ri­fice and, er, dres­sage. It’s not hard to see why John Cleese once called Iz­zard a “lost Python”. RW
